As the former girlfriend of the Duke of Roxburghe, once Britain’s most eligible bachelor, fashion designer Morvarid Sahafi might be expected to feel a little glum at the news he is getting married.
After all, she only split from the Duke – former Army captain Charlie Innes-Ker, 39, with whom she has a four-year-old daughter – just before lockdown last year. What’s more, his fiancee, Annie Green, 31, is one of Ms Sahafi’s friends.
But if the Iranian-born 39-year-old has any regrets that Ms Green, not herself, is moving into 200-room Floors Castle – which Charlie inherited along with a £100 million fortune when his father died in 2019 – she is keeping them to herself.

'This show, more than any other, shows the magic creatives weave'There’s never been a more vital time for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show. A quiet, rarefied collection that falls in the first week of December, it has, in many ways, always been more a celebration of people than clothes. It is Chanel’s genuflection to the artisan houses and makers who craft the buttons, feathers, hats, pleats, and all-round magic that adorn Chanel’s collections. They are the creatives who can make collars as delicate and delicious as curls of white chocolate from French lace; costume jewellers who can make a one-inch button as beautiful and unique as a red diamond.
‘I have known her for 15 years. I knew her before I knew him.
‘I am very happy about the marriage. I could not have picked a better person myself. She [Annie] is incredible.’

‘They met in summer 2020 and get on so well – they are a fab couple,’ says a friend,
Before the Duke met Ms Sahafi he was married to Charlotte Aitken, the eldest daughter of Lord Beaverbrook, but they separated within a year.
